Re: Info needed, routes Great Lakes and ICW

You can do Oswego to Troy (Hudson River) in 4 days if you run hard every day but that's not the way to do the NY State Barge Canal. Take your time and smell the roses. It's a very nice trip if done from late August on. You can get your mast down in Oswego but prices have gone up a lot there and some cruisers are now getting the mast down in Sodus (a short trip from Oswego). If you do it in Sodus you can enter Lock 8 right away and spend the night in calm water rather than in Oswego Harbour. Good fee tie-ups all along the canal.
